I think PHP developers haven't get that patched for 5.2.x (yet), as
the branch is considered to be obsolete.  We may have to patch the
port ourselves.

Note that FreeBSD PHP port comes with Suhosin by default, which
_could_ have mitigated the attack (disclaimer: I'm not very confident
that this solves all problems, though, as it requires a more through
code review).
